smart and useful preamp
Adri, 05.10.2016
I bought this to have more control over my tone, I play an acoustic guitar with a Fishman pro blend installed, they work together quite well.

The EQ filters are what I was looking for, you have a low cut knob, bass, mids, and treble and another called 'brillance' which works like an upper treble filter. You can select the frequency affected by the mid knob, something quite useful to cut those muddy mid-range tones that feedback so easily when amplifying acoustic guitars.

Compressor, tuner, input trim, boost... these features are useful to some extent.

The tuner has an accuracy of +5- cents, it could be better as some clip-on tuners can get at +3-.

When I wanted to keep the input and boost levels fixed, had to stick some tape over them, otherwise it's easy to mess up the levels, a thing to be aware of when plugging in an amp or hitting the boost!

By the way the boost is a nice feature, say you're playing rhythm full on with the band and here comes your solo, boost some Db up and cut through!... I find the minimum setting boosting +3db is quite enough for me!

Compressor is also good for when you play a mix of stumming and picking as it will level up the dynamics making your stumming sound a bit quieter and you picking louder but I would not abuse of it.

It works with passive and active pickups, with passive you just have to adjust the input trim and you'll get a good signal.

The battery lid seems a bit flimsy and the battery itself feels like is wanting to spring out of its placement, there is not a fixing connector, so I'm afraid if the lid breaks I'll be forced to buy the power supply.

I was waiting for it to come out last year, the best for me is having all of this analogue filtering features plus a tuner in a small stompbox and I'd say it was worth the wait and the money.

Fishman quality

I will try to keep this short but there are so many positive aspects to this pedal.
My Setup-Taylor 110e with ES2 pickup--Fishman Tonedeq--Fishman Platinum Pro EQ---Fishman Artist Loudbox or Maui 11 G2.So with that out of the way this my impression after playing and dialing it in for about 20 minutes.......Absolutely awesome the sound that comes out of my amp...it has improved enormously and you have a wide spectrum of tone sculpting.Even though the amp has antifeedback and a phase switch I was having feedback problems before...now I can literally sit in front of my amp, play and the notch knob is only turned to 4 and the phase switch on the pedal is on and ...the feedback is eliminated!! WHY!?? didnt I buy this pedal before I mean really it is way worth its money and then some.This pedal should be on every acoustic musicians pedalboard..period.

I tried it through my Maui 11 G2 and the sound was what I expected..really good and the sound from the Tonedeq were clearer than before....feedback...zero.
The sound from the Maui 11 G2 with this pedal just sounds better than before.

The tuner is quick,easy to see and accurate and can be used for multiple acoustic instruments....which is very good but....if you are playing in the sun it is VERY HARD TO SEE IT.Boost works well.
I am really impressed with this pedal and absolutely would recommend it without hesitating.
I would buy it again if anything went wrong.

Negatives-should have bought it earlier! lol

Excellent preamp for double bass
stopolos, 08.04.2019
This thing handles a double bass as no others. No unnecessary coloring of the initial bass sound. Very nice compressor which gives that little extra sustain. Very usable notch control. Good tuner. No hum or noise.
Very solid built and affordable!

I have tested numerous acoustic preamps but have always ended up with a sort of nasal sound which killed the original sound of the bass. This one is without doubt the best if you dont wanna pay a lot of extra $$.

Beware that this stomp box is big and heavy. I has a tendency to eat batteries, so be sure to unplug when finished playing, and have an extra 9V available.

Do I recommend this preamp? Oh, yes! This is an essential preamp to have in the toolbox.

By the way... It works fine with an electric bass too.

good product - tricky to use
Igharib , 30.09.2018
I am using this with my upright bass and my fender precision bass.
first for upright: it is definitely useful specially that you can cancel feedback from it . in terms of control, it has a ton of feature ( too many buttons for me ) but definitely has many usable sounds but need a lot of experimentation as it is not straight forward i think.
no cons really when using upright bass , except the fact that theres, deliberately , no volume control when using as DI. well ... otherwise , you just need time to experiment.
when using the P-bass, i didn't love it , it doesnt harm but it didnt see how it adds. that probably because i expected more to the extent that i would be able to make my Pbass sound like an active bass or a possible better slapping sound but it wouldnt do that ( analog preamp!) heard it can make an active sound passive though - didnt try .

I would buy it for upright. and for recording with upright.
